What is "community-powered skiing"?

"What had begun only months before as a 'good idea' to a few individuals had materialized as a 'good thing' for the whole community."

- First MSNC Annual Report, 1987

As a "community-powered" ski area, Spring Gulch depends on the financial support of MSNC members. Thanks to skiers like you, 28-kilometers of beautiful cross-country ski trails are regularly groomed and open to the public, free of charge, all winter long. What a gift to our community!

Your support makes a difference. The donations of our members directly offset roughly 50% of our annual expenses - over $150,000 per year! - helping the MSNC enhance the quality and consistency of grooming available, maintain the trail system, and ensure the longterm financial health of the organization. As a result, our community gets to kick and glide happily around Spring Gulch, soaking in the timeless views with the reassurance that the trail system will be well-cared for, for our collective benefit, for many years to come. 

As a 501c3 nonprofit, all donations to the Mt Sopris Nordic Council are fully tax deductible. Tax ID: 84-1037532.

We are happy to discuss options for planned giving, and welcome contributions from donor advised funds. It's a collective effort, and we're so glad you're in our corner!
